Title: Anthropological Perspectives on Africa
Description: This course has two main objectives: to introduce the contours of life as experienced by the diverse peoples of Africa and to help develop a critical historical perspective on the anthropology of Africa. By examining key concepts involved in the study of Africa, you will gain an increased understanding of sociocultural unity as well as diversity in the African context. In addition, you will see the impact Africa based field studies have had on anthropology. The class uses a thematic approach: kinship & social organization, politics & ethnicity, economics, modes of thought, religion, and art & aesthetics. You will also gain an understanding of the complexity of life by reading an award-winning contemporary ethnographic narrative. The objective is to see how members of a given society negotiate some of the general themes you learn about in the course.
